    We must begin to unpack core issues and continuously vow to protect our children and preserve families. Economic hardships, unemployment, and underemployment often increase the likelihood of poverty-especially in rural communities. Additionally, low wage jobs, high housing cost, and resources to purchase healthy foods increase the daily burdens of our vulnerable citizens. Wages must increase.

    Economically, minimum wage increases inflation. Let the free market determine what wage is best. Those who are unable to make ends meet may benefit meeting with state agencies that provide job training, career path planning and education. Of course there are welfare programs for those in a really tough spot, but should be temporary.

    I do not believe that the current increase is good for our economy, however to abolish the minimum wage would be irresponsible.

    I oppose raising the minimum wage too high, too fast. The idea is to force people to better themselves with higher education and/or better experience. Minimum wage jobs are not designed to be living wage. They are start up jobs.....get your feet wet....etc..... If people stay in the minimum wage jobs (because they get enough, etc..), the new people will not have anywhere to go or start.
